Avril Lavigne has been described as “the epitome of a rock star” who had inspired “a generation of children” as she was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The pop star, known for 1920s hits including Complicated and Sk8er Boi, signed her first record deal at the age of 16 and has sold 40 million albums worldwide.

Taking the stage to accept the honor, she showed a photo of herself as a teenager on her first trip to Hollywood, where she visited the Walk Of Fame wearing her favorite hoodie.

Lavigne then received the same hoodie, which said “Skateboarding is not a crime”, which she then wore “for good luck and good vibes”.

Recalling the trip, he said: “I remember seeing these legendary names and I never imagined mine would be here, it’s so crazy.

“This is probably one of the best days of my life.”

She continued: “Today I love making music more than ever, I feel so inspired.



“I hope the next 16 year old from their small town who comes to Hollywood full of hopes and dreams one day sees this star and thinks to himself ‘oh my God, my name might be there too someday’, because Power.

“Follow your dreams, live your passion, express yourself, be real, work hard, keep your head up, believe in yourself.

Kelly told Lavigne that he had “been with me a lot longer than you know”.

“You’ve been with me all the times my heart broke, your music was in my head,” he said.



“You were an inspiration to a generation of guys like me who wore baggy jeans and skated, and didn’t fit MTV’s version of what girls wanted.

“When you made Sk8er Boi, that was the hope of holding on like ‘oh hell, yes, we can stay as we are, there’s someone out there looking for us’.”

Sharing memories of a performance in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, he recalled being driven by Lavigne on a golf cart through the stadium.

“You were handing out Mike’s Hard Lemonades and drinking red wine, and you were the epitome of an amazing friend and a fucking rock star,” he said.

“You are so far from any labels anyone can give you… you are so important.



“Your songs will live far beyond our lives, so … congratulations on being Avril Lavigne.”
